relative prevalence of upper respiratory tract obstructive disorders in two breeds of harness racehorses (185 cases: 1998-2006).reasons for performing study: two genetically and phenotypically distinct horse breeds are used for harness racing in scandinavia: the standardbred (sb) and coldblooded trotter. these racehorses have identical environmental, management and racing conditions. therefore, this study was undertaken to identify and compare the relative prevalence of upper respiratory tract (urt) obstructive disorders in these 2 breeds. objectives: to determine whether these 2 phenotypically different breeds of harnes ...201122150875
heritability estimations of osteochondrosis in the tibiotarsal joint and of bony fragments in the palmar/plantar portion of the metacarpo- and metatarsophalangeal joints of horses.radiography of the tibiotarsal and metacarpo- and metatarsophalangeal joints was performed on 753 standardbred trotters (6 to 21 months old) born in 1988. the surveyed population was drawn at random from all parts of norway and represented about 60% of standardbred trotters born the same year. osteochondrosis in the tibiotarsal joint was diagnosed in 108 (14.3%) horses, and the prevalence of disease in progeny groups > 10 ranged from 0 to 69%. bony fragments in the palmar/plantar portion of the ...19938407439
detection of enteric viruses in shellfish from the norwegian coast.common blue mussels (mytilus edulis), horse mussels (modiolus modiolus), and flat oysters (ostrea edulis) obtained from various harvesting and commercial production sites along the norwegian coast were screened for the presence of norovirus by a real-time reverse transcription (rt)-nested pcr assay and for possible indicators of fecal contamination, i.e., for f-specific rna bacteriophages (f-rna phages) by plaque assay and for human adenoviruses and human circoviruses by nested pcr assay. the ai ...200415128518
an epidemiological study of summer eczema in icelandic horses in norway.a survey of summer eczema was conducted on 391 icelandic horses in norway. the study showed a prevalence of summer eczema of 17.6 per cent in the horses investigated. icelandic horses born in norway where shown to be less affected with summer eczema than imported horses, 8.2 per cent and 26.9 per cent respectively (p less than 0.001). there was no difference in the prevalence of summer eczema relative to gender or colour of the horse. the number of horses affected with summer eczema rose with in ...19911915231
effect of poll flexion and dynamic laryngeal collapse on tracheal pressure in norwegian coldblooded trotter racehorses.dynamic laryngeal collapse (dlc) associated with poll flexion is a newly diagnosed upper respiratory tract obstructive disorder that causes poor racing performance.200919301583
breed demarcation and potential for breed allocation of horses assessed by microsatellite markers.population demarcation of eight horse breeds was investigated using genotype information of 306 horses from 26 microsatellite loci. the breeds include the indigenous norwegian breeds fjord horse, nordland/lyngen horse, døle horse and coldblooded trotter together with icelandic horse, shetland pony, standardbred and thoroughbred. both phylogenetic analysis and a maximum likelihood method were applied to examine the potential for breed allocation of individual animals. the phylogenetic analysis ut ...200111421939
[animal bites at the casualty department of the oslo city council].during a 2-year period all casualty department data charts with the diagnosis "animal bite" were reviewed as part of internal quality control. of 1,051 recorded episodes, 503 (48%) were women and 147 (14%) children under 16 years of age. 951 (90%) wounds were treated without closure. half of the patients were not given antibiotics on the first visit, whereas one third were given penicillin. tetanus status had been evaluated on 1,015 (97%) charts. most bites were caused by dogs (76%), cats (17%), ...19989673507
